Print Panel challenge

Following last year’s successful Print Panel challenge where 13 members submitted a huge variety of themed images displayed as a panel on A1 board we will be running the challenge again this year. Members vote for their top three panels ( not including their own!) and the winners will be announced during the evening. This year we are introducing a Smart Phone Digital Panel Challenge as well – please see below for all the rules.
